The status change isn't in the upstream pmud source yet, I added it in
debugging the pmud trackpad state code and notified Stephan that there's a
patch to trackpad.c in the latest Debian pmud diff. As trackpad doesn't
even get compiled by the pmud package build I'm sure it's considered low
priority there :-)

Yep, I got it from you way back, and I may have suggested to Paul to
include it with pmud while he was working on pmud. Or Stephan found it and
added it. I should really send you the patch as well :-)

I'd rather suggest to package trackpad, fblevel and some other odds and
ends (mousehack still alive?) as pbook-utils or in powermac-utils, and
make pmud depend on that. So people won't need to install the 'insecure'
pmud package.
